Why is the goat the most dangerous Ego? Could you explain why. Reply

Choosing? Rabbi...I continue to enjoy your spirited question occurred to me as you were speaking...isn't the point of teaching, especially speaking softly to our children and the next generation, to teach them to choose? opposed to merely accepting being born into traditional practice? People tend to listen carefully to the 'soft' voice...and by doing so they are choosing. To me this is the 'Emor' point...thank you for bringing this to life. Reply

Thank you Rabbi Chaim, for by you softly expressing your words, it is causing an immediate effect in our cosmos, that allow our sefirot to reveal its brightness. As you explained here, I am one of those, who chose this path, but it was there from the very beginning, but no less, was the fervor of those born into, that revealed the bond in my heart.
May all of us bring in this now the full and complete revelation of our Moshiach.

softness thank you for the reminder to maintain softness in our interactions with others, especially spouse and children. i want the teaching of my children to be from a place of trust, and closeness, not a pedestal. ..i think i am a sheep. Reply

grateful You have really been part of my torah/spiritual nutrition to rejuvinate my soul when i am busy at work and life in sometimes a very dark and lonely place and wish i was somewhere else like i a warm yeshiva feeling the shechinah and sharing her joy with fellow talmidim and eating and drinking words of Torah in the same way a baby breastfeeds from his/her mother and grows and becomes stronger. I like your sincerity and honesty and very much value you wealth of torah knowledge in times of fast change. Shalom! Reply

Thank you so much Rabbi Miller.
Torah in 10 is such a gem - a pocket full of gems really !
You asked for comments re: our type of ego. It's good to know there are diff types -
I'm not sure if I am a sheep or a goat - I don't think I'm the ox - hope not anyway. My husband says I am a rabbit cause I like salad, esp carrots and he doesn't ! Reply
